Last Day in Taipei and Onwards to Seoul

Today we say good bye to Taipei and travel to Seoul by evening flight.



We still had a lot of time to kill from 9 AM to 4 PM.

So we decided to Venture out in the city and see some more places.

We had stayed at Ximending which is in walking distance of most places.

Started off with a breakfast at MOS burger.



The places to see today were 

  • NTU hospital building, 
  • Taiwan national museum and 
  • The peace park around. 


There is also a presidential building nearby which adds up to the rich architectural heritage of the city. 



We later realised that the Chiang Kai-Shek building is also walkable from the hostel. 



What a shame, we travelled by MRT the day earlier to reach CSK hall. We could have just walked!





On the way we had some sweet cakes stuff with regular red bean or cream.



The bite makes others envious....




Prasha wants another round



Soon we reached the National Taiwan museum. There were no plans to see the museum. I personally don't like museums.





The park is just behind the museum and these are the things you can't do in the park.





Kids going home after school


They say, speak with the kids and God speaks back to you!


Working Class having their lunch boxes!


Some heritage building.





Presidential Building from a distance

Bought Doughnuts for mid-flight snacks...


By now it was already 3 PM.
With this we concluded our Taiwan trip. 
Headed back to hotel. Picked up our luggage and took the bus 1819 back to airport.

The station was at a walking distance from the hotel and took us 15 min with the luggage to reach there.
The bus ride took another 1 hour.



Soon were on our Scoot flight to South Korea!




Bye Bye Taipei...... Hello Seoul!




Took luggage off the belt. 
We did as the locals did. Rushed to the train station connected to the airport.


Bought a single journey ticket.
We wondered why everyone was rushing...



Looks like it is the last local for the day.... 


It was still 11PM and last local is at 12 midnight.

Once exited from Seoul city station took a taxi to Kimchee Guesthouse. It was eerily silent and dark, 

The Seoul tower shone from a distance on top of the hill.

It was then we realised it was already past midnight and we had travelled into the next time zone...

Getting late for the day... In the upcoming post will share our experiences of the new city that we just came in
